Employers may have a dress code or uniform requirement, sometimes for health and safety reasons. The dress code must not be discriminatory, and employers must make reasonable adjustments as appropriate for their employees. It might help to arrange a meeting with your employer to explain how your EB has an impact on you and explain what would help you (e.g. being able to wear soft trainers of your choice).
